Dr. Charles Jackson, a rising star among creationism salesmen, was featured in Eric Hovind's recent Genesis 3D Movie and Eric presents him as a "genius" on his Creation Today website.

Do Creationists Really Teach That People Rode Dinosaurs?

Image from Ken Ham's book titled Dinosaurs Of Eden: Tracing The Mystery Through History published March, 2000

No, A Modern Human Knee Was Not Found In Layers Older Than Lucy

I've seen some recent videos and memes by some confused creationists where they try to make the case that the knee discovered by Donald Johanson back in 1973, the year before he discovered Lucy, was a "modern human knee" and therefore an out of place fossil. The misunderstanding stems from a 199…

Homo Erectus - Great Example Of A Transitional Species

 

Creationists constantly make the claim "there are no transitional fossils." You can see it on every creationist website and in every discussion group every day of the year. They repeat this mantra over and over, even when given direct empirical evidence to the contrary. While there are lit…

Great Lecture By Dr. Eugenie Scott

An EXCELLENT lecture by Dr. Eugenie Scott about how the foundation of Creationism is myth, why evolution is not myth, why that matters, and where do we go from here in reaching out to others while defending the progress we have made in areas of science education.
